Igash the Fanatic can be found at the Throne of Igash in the instance The Grand Stair at [72.5N, 138.1W]. He is the leader of orcs of The Grand Stair, and a minion of Mazog. He gathers tribute from the various tribes of Moria.

Gazathrug Slaves appear by Igash the Fanatic to take away tributes. They will also come steal the loot if the mission is failed. You cannot fight them.


  • Defence 1 (buff)-icon.png Steeled Mind This creature cannot be forced into attacking a single target through means other than damage or response to healing.

Igash is the lord and master of the Grand Stair, and he has as many enemies as he has devotees. He musters a great swell of arms to assault the dwarves of Moria.
